File this under “Culture War Victory!” Kim Davis is the County Clerk in Kentucky who refused to sign “marriage certificates” for homosexuals because it violated her Christian beliefs. She became the target of a vicious campaign from the Left who called her every name they could think of and mounted a campaign to get her removed from office.
You could also file this under “Elections Have Consequences” because newly elected Republican Governor Matt Bevin filed an executive order to make sure Kim didn’t have to violate her religious beliefs.
Kentucky Republican Gov. Matt Bevin ordered the state to prepare new marriage licenses that do not include the names of county clerks in an attempt to protect the religious beliefs of clerk Kim Davis and other local elected officials.
The executive order comes after Davis, the Rowan County clerk, spent five days in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Davis said she could not issue the licenses because they had her name on them.
Bevin said he wanted to “ensure that the sincerely held religious beliefs of all Kentuckians are honored.” It was one of five executive orders he issued Tuesday, the first of his administration, that mostly revised or suspended recent actions by former Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear.
It’s amazing hypocrisy on the part of Democrats that they will fight tooth-and-nail for a Muslim who refuses to ring up a pork purchase at Costco, but want a Christian beheaded because she stands by her Christian principles over homosexual “marriage.” If Democrats didn’t have double standards they wouldn’t have any standards.
